Home for Dinner

Postby Bill Hudson » Mon Nov 30, 2015 3:48 pm

This came in the Historical Engine Society newsletter The Crank & Stroke and I wanted to share it.

I was walking down the street when I was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked for a couple of dollars for dinner. I took out my wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked, “If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?”

“No, I had to stop drinking years ago,” the homeless man replied.

“Will you spend this on old tractor parts instead of food?” I asked.

“Are you NUTS!” replied the homeless man. “I haven’t had an old tractor in 20 years!”

“Well,” I said, “I’m not going to give you the money. Instead, I’m going to take you home for a shower and a terrific dinner cooked by my wife.”

The homeless man was astounded. “Won’t your wife be furious with you for doing that?”

I replied, “Don’t worry about that. It’s important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up drinking and restoring old tractors.”
